THE MASTER BLUES BROTHERS

Listen to The Master Blues Brothers

On January 1st 2005, The Master Blues Brothers was officially born in front of a hungover but raucous New Years Day crowd. What started out as an fun loving one-off quickly grew into hundreds of performances all over the UK. From Brighton’s Palace Pier to the shores of Scotland’s Loch Ness, Jim and Sam found the blues and had a wild ride. You can listen to some of the band’s best tunes below.

10 Years of Soul, Rhythm & Blues and Blues

On December 4th, 2015 Jim and Sam brought The Master Blues Brothers to an end. It had been a crazy 11 years. From starting out with karaoke style backing tracks in small clubs to sharing big venues with Brighton based soul band The Devotions, The Master Blues Brothers had always done their best to leave it all on the stage every night.

But by 2015, both Sam and Jim knew that pouring their heart into the show for so long had started to take its toll. Not wanting to end up as another middle aged low-power tribute act they decided that their big Christmas party in Mansfield would be the last time.

Arriving in the Blues Mobile they gave 500 people everything they had left for 60 sweat-soaked minutes. Then, as The Devotions played I Can’t Turn You Loose one more time they got back into the 1974 Dodge Monaco Sedan and rode off into a winter sunset. The party was over, but 11 years of being the real brothers of blues would never be forgotten.
